2017 Mazda RX7 Review

Mazda will bring back the much-loved RX-7 in 2017, with less weight, less complexity and a greater emphasis on driver involvement. Speaking to TMR at the local launch of the facelifted MX-5, Mazda Motor Corporation’s sports car chief Nobuhiro Yamamoto said that the return of the RX-7 will mark 50 years since the introduction of Mazda’s first rotary-engined car, the Cosmo Sport, in 1967.

Mazda is said to bring back the rotary engine to the global automotive stage when a successor for the RX-7 and RX-8 sports cars launches in 2017. The timing is not random, as in 2017, Mazda will celebrate the 50th anniversary of its first car powered by a Wankel rotary engine, the Cosmo Sport.

According to an Autoexpress report, just like the RX-7 and RX-8 before it, the new Mazda sports car will be bigger and more powerful than the Mazda MX-5 roadster. More importantly, it should be more fuel-efficient and reliable than its predecessors, with engineers working to solve the Wankel’s engine typical flaws, high fuel and oil consumption and low torque, without going the turbocharged route.

We already have an announcement for upcoming model from Mazda. In 2016 they will launch new MX-5 Miata model. That is sport car from Japanese carmaker, developed to compete in that segment. However, a year after that, we will have special model. The 2017 Mazda RX7 is being prepared, and it will commemorate anniversary of rotary engine which was launched in Mazda for the first time in 1967.  Not any, but that will be half of century for this type of engine, so we expect the 2017 RX7 to travel back in time and get a little more classic look, and a very same type of powertrain.

All of us curently have a good statement with regard to forthcoming design through Mazda. Within 2016 they’ll release brand new MX-5 Miata design. That’s activity vehicle through Japoneses carmaker, created in order to contend for the reason that section. Nevertheless, annually next, all of us may have unique design. The actual 2017 Mazda RX7 has been ready, also it may memorialize wedding anniversary associated with rotary motor that was released within Mazda with regard to the very first time within 1967. No, however that’ll be 1 / 2 of hundred years with regard to this kind of motor, therefore all of us anticipate the actual 2017 RX7 to visit back in its history and obtain a bit more traditional appear, along with a exact same kind of powertrain.

While he was coy about the RX-7’s target weight, he said it “would definitely be lighter” than the 1310kg FD RX-7, and “probably around the weight of the Toyota 86” (1250kg).

It is still not clear what will power 2017 Mazda RX7. Some rumors say, as it was expected for 50th anniversary, that under the hood of the 2017 RX7 will be rotary engine. Turbocharged drivetrain will produce around 400 hp. That is significant boost to 240 hp in current Mazda RX8. We suppose that transmission system will be kept. That is 6-speed manual or 5-speed auto gearbox. Last rotary unit was launched in 2011 in RX8 model. Then already, predictions were made this type of engine will come back for its anniversary, and now we are closer to that day. Also, since there is no official confirmation from the company, we hear rumors that new Mazda RX7 is coming.

In order to save weight, Mazda is likely to return to a classic two-door coupe body style rather than continue the RX-8’s four-door configuration. Discontinued in 2010, the RX-8 tipped the scales at around 1,310 kg (2,888 lbs), 120 kg (264.5 lbs) more than a current Toyota GT 86. Naturally, Mazda’s upcoming sports car will stick to rear-wheel drive, especially since the car is said to be based on an extended version of the new MX-5’s platform, modified to support the more potent powertrain.

2017 Mazda RX7 Engine

The Mazda RX-7 was introduced in 1978 as replacement for the Savanna RX-7. The sports car joined the company’s lineup as the second vehicle to feature a Wankel rotary engine, being sold alongside the Cosmo luxury coupe. Initially powered by a 1.1-liter unit, the first-generation RX-7 received a larger, 1.3-liter engine rated at 133 horsepower later in its life. In 1983, two years before the second-gen model was introduced, a turbo version of the 1.1-liter delivered as much as 163 ponies. A redesigned model followed in 1986. The 1.1-liter engine was dropped, while the 1.3-liter version received a turbocharger of its own. Power ranged between 146 and 202 horsepower, although the latter was only offered between 1989 and 1991. 1992 marked the introduction of the third-generation model and a hefty update to the already proven 13B rotary engine. Output now began from 252 horsepower and went up to 276 in the third-generation’s final years. The RX-7 was axed in 2002, as Mazda was working on the RX-8. As we move into 2015 and toward a completely redesigned Miata MX-5 , more and more rumors about Mazda’s plans to revive the RX-7 nameplate as a successor to the RX-8 and develop a new, high-performance rotary engine are starting to surface.

Displacing 1.6 litres (the previous-generation rotary, the 13B/Renesis, only displaced 1.3 litres), Yamamoto says the 16X is capable of up to 300 metric horsepower (220kW) in a naturally-aspirated configuration.

As the man who designed the Le Mans-winning Mazda 787B’s R26B rotary engine, which developed 700hp from just 2.6 litres, Yamamoto should know a thing or two about extracting the most from a rotary.

But while 220kW might sound low compared to many other modern sports cars, Yamamoto says that the new RX-7 will be light enough to make the most of its power.
